The Recommendations of Actions for Resilience and Sustainability (RAR-S) proposed in this report is the main result of the collaboration between Yakutsk City Administration of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and UN-Habitat City Resilience Global Programme. The main objectives of the Agreement are to analyse the Yakutsk urban systems, define a Yakutsk Resilience City Profile, and produce recommendations of actions that would address risks (shocks, stresses and challenges), and ultimately build resilience in Yakutsk.

This report presents the findings and potential way forward for the city of Yakutsk based on the resilience analysis and diagnosis derived from the City Resilience Profiling Tool (CRPT). UN-Habitat and the Municipality of Yakutsk have led the implementation of the CRPT in the city and have successfully overcome challenges related to data collection and revision. The project has secured commitment from key actors that play a role in current and future steps.

This report is based on the work undertaken during the years of implementation and presents findings from analysis and diagnosis, as well as the Recommendations of Actions for Resilience and Sustainability for the city of Yakutsk.
